While some seem to luix'c little interest, and a tew niaiiil'est 
a eoiiteni|>tuous in(liffei'<.'iiee. in rcLiaril to tlieii' ancestry, most 
]iei'soiis feel a desire to know sometliinu' of their |iroL:eniti>i's. 
Tliere is (juite eertain to come in the life of e\-ei'\' one who 
attains matiirit\'. a time when he is led to make some iiii[nii'y. 
and perhaps reseai'eh. into his familv genealo^uy. It iis)ially 
does not oeeni' nntil a period when nian\' of those \vho, from 
their extreme ag'e were imjiortant links witli the '• long past."

tal)le inh)i'mation of ones pi'ogenitors ai*' h:)st heyond reeo\-ei'y. 

The early settlers of New England were so constantly oeen- 
pied in suhduing the forests, erecting rnde dwellings, and pi'o- 
eiiring a scanty snbsistence for their families, that they had 
hnt little time for making written I'ecords. even if they had 
the disposition, al:)ilitv, and faeilit\' for doing so. .Vnd then. 
1)V the sudden attack of the Indians, and often eomjilete 
destruction of their homes, all that had heen written was Ire- 
(juently lost beyond re])lacement. Duxbury, which was the 
parent town of Bridgewater. lost all of its town records pre\ i- 
f)us to l()o4:. — sai<l to haye been burnt. The Colony ivcords 
of births and deaths pre\'ious to KJ-t" were also lost: and in 
lySiS all of the records of the t(_i\vn of "i^annton wer(' desti'oyed 
l)y hre. Though the materials haye been so scanty, siu-li has 
been the interest in family genealogy, and such the industry in 
gathering items from e\'ery source — family biltles, addresses, 
ecclesiastical and town records — and ])iittinL: them into accessi- 
ble and durable fV)rm. that most descendants of tin' Colonists 
can trace their family comiection to the ■• hi'st settlei'. with 
tolerable acciiracy. 


In mv earlv rears I used to listen with (Iee}> interest to the 
conversations between nivaged grandniotlier and my ])arents in 
res'ard to their "C(^nneetions,"" and some of them have never 
been f(3rg()tten. 

In the year 1846 I was chosen by the heirs (jf an nncle who 
had died, childless and intestate, in Natchitoches, La., as attor- 
nev to settle his estate. He was of a family c^f tliirteen chil- 
dren, and his eldest brother had a like number. Other l)rothei's 
and sisters had considerahde families, several had deceased. — 
and in some cases their children also. — leaving issue. To pro- 
cure legal ])owers from all the heirs, I had of necessity to 
become somewhat acquainted with a large numljer of relatives 
livin^!' in many dilfereiU states of tlie Union. About this time 
I ])rocured a copv of the Ilistoiw of Bridgewater l)y Hon. 
Nalium Mitchell, which contains the fullest genealogical his- 
torv of our brancli of the family that has ever been published. 
I saw at once that his dates and ('onnecti(_)n of families (bd not 
agree with what I had gathered from my father and other.^. I 
sought his ar<[uaintance and found he had alivady discovered 
errors which had occurred from the fre([uent repetition of 
Christian names in ditferent families leading to inisconnection, 
and a hick of c/arefully verifying dates and statements that had 
been fui'nished him. In an a])})eudix to the later bound copies 
of his liistor\', some of these errors we're ni_)ted. AVitli his 
idiaracteristic courtesy and k'induess he aided me in my 
researches and under his own hand gave me valuable ir.forma- 
tion which will a])|)ear in its proper jdace. I hail also some 
ac([uaintance with Hon. dames Savage and souglit to have in 
his u'l'eal work, wliicli w^as then in manuscript, a I'orrection of 
the puMislieil eri'ors in regard to onr progenitoi's. Many of 
them, howevei', it will be seen. ha\'e been jiei-petuated.

ThrouLiii Mr. Drake 1 I'eeeived the New England Historical 
and (renealogieal Kegistei' until his decease, and from the societv 
since. The perusal of this pul)lication. and tlu' incidents nai'- 
rated. awakened an interest in genealogical lore and lia\e led 
to extensive research in oi'dei- to ivconcile the difl'erent state- 
ments regarding our family, or to learn what is false and what 
true, anil to discover the missing links in our genealogical chain. 

For some time I ardently cherished the }inrpose of ])nl)lisli- 
ing a very full and voluminous I'ecord of all those in this 
country l)earing our family name, lait I have met with so manv 
obstacles that 1 have al»and()ned the plan. I am now content 
to comhine, in as intelligiMe a form as 1 am al>le. the sulistaiice 
of what I liave gathered l>v haig lalior and at consideraMe 
expense and leave the work for others to complete. 


Leoxakd. This is a veiy ancient naniL'. and has l)c'en kn(.)\vn 
for several centuries, both as a christian and surname. 

Much lias been written and published in regard to the nomen- 
clature of surnames — tlieii" derivation and signification. Those 
who are curious in these matters can examine Camden's British 
Remains, puljlislied in London in 1687, Lower on English Sur- 
names, Chaml)ers\ Fesenden's and Brande's Dictionaries. A 
verv interesting article on Indi\"idual and Familv Names was 
published in the N. E. Historical and Genealogical Register, 
184:8, Vol. IL page 162. It was written by Rev. William 
Cogswell, I). I)., who was editor of the first volume of the 
Register, memlier of tliis societv, also of the American Anti- 
quarian and tlie Massachusetts Historical Societies, and was 
well verse<l in historical and antiquarian lore. Pie states that 
this is one of the class of surnames that originated from the 
christian name. The signitication is. Lion-hearted, from Leo or 
Leo7i and arrj. It seems strange that those who attained the 
lionors of knighthood did not ado]»t a lion's head for tlieir crest 
instead of a tigers/ 

AVhile some would sav in the words of Cowper: 

■'My boast is not that I dfducp my bntli 
From loins enthroned, the rulers of the earth. 
But higher far my proud pretensions rise — 
The son of parents passed into tlie skies." 

others are ambitious to trace their lineage to the nobility of 
the old world. For the benefit of such, and of all others inter- 
ested, an engraved coi)y of the coat of arms said to belong to 
the Leonai'd family is printetl with description of that, and of 
that of the family of Lennard, Ijord Daci'c, whicli it will be 
observed are very similar with the exception of the motto.*

As has been stated. ]\'rez Fol)es. LL. I)., knew the relation 
that the different bramdies of the family bore to eaeli other. 
He was a native of Bridgewater — a descendant of John Fohes 
of l)uxl)urv. one of tlie original proprietors of Bridgewater. 
and it is thought came to this counti-\- with Solomon Lt'onard. 
Hi'. Fohes had a love for liistoi'ical and antiipiarian investiga- 
tion and research, and jiossessed rare facilities for its gratilica- 
tion which he sedulouslv improxed. He once wi'ote that he 
was acipnnnted with a man who had seen King I'hilip. He 
aided mv father in litting for college, was one of his ]iroft'ssors 
in Brown Universitv during his college course, and there was

When ill Europe in 1804, 1 visited Moimiouthshire in the 
hope of linding some reeords of the famil\' liefore their emi- 
gration to this eountry. I found the old reeords in Pont\'])ool 
had heen verv badly kept and got no satisfaetoi'v information 
from them. Several persons l.earing the name were living in 
tlie vi(.'init\". and an [iged man by the name of John Leonard, 
took me to the gravevard neai' the ancient ehuirli (^f Treve- 
tlian, not far from the town, wdiere I found insei'iptions reeord- 
ing the deaths, at an earlv date, of those 1 .earing the names 
John and dames. 

A prominent gentleman, the acknowledged head of the 
family of L'^tmard. living in Biiekingliam Villas, Clifton — the 
beautiful environ of Bristol — and his faniih', took mueh inter- 
est in the matter. He bore the cdiristian name of Solomon as 
ditl his father and grandfathei' before liim. 1 was assured that 
not onl\' this name, but also John, Jaeob and Isaac, had been 
common in the faniih' there h.r manv generations: that they 
Avere dissenters and some of the familv went to Leyden, and it 
was lM'lic\-cd from there to America. In a corresjiondenee 
with members of the family, continued for several years, this 
belief was confirmed.

there when the town was incorporated. IGoT. lie had land at

are \'erv meagre and imperfect, and so incomplete that the his-

Bridgewater and one t>f the earliest settlers there: Mr. Savage 
savs as earlv as l(')4:o, but it nnist have l:)een some years later. 
The grant of tlie plantation by the Court was not made until 
liUo. and the Indian title to the territory was made by deed of 
'•the good old ]vIassasoit,"" ilated March 28. KUD. The town 
was not incor|)orated as a distinct township until Kioli. It 
contained at one time about ninety-six s(piare miles of territory,

ini-luded within its bonnds. as well as the •■ Four Bi'idgewaters,"" 
— the North Parish l)eing now the thriving city of Brockton. 

The first settlement was made near what is now AVest Ih-idge- 
water. •• Each settler had at tirst a grant of a house lot of six 
acres on the town rivei', then called Nnckatest or Nuncketetest, 
;iii Indian name in close allinitv with that of the pond from 
which it flows, now called Xippenicket, foi'merlx' written 
Xca]iiincket or Xeapnuncket. The tirst lots were taken up in 
West l)ri<lgcwatci'. and the Hrst houses built, and tirst improve- 
ments made there: and the settlement was called after the 
name of tiic i'i\-ci-. X'uuck'etest, or X'^unckety. sometimes Uid<-

the center. On this he ereeted a liumMe hal)itation that was 
|irolia1ilv the dwelliiiL;' jtlaee of himself and family to \\\v close 
of his life. 

After a faithful and indefatiLi'alde search of man\- \-ears it is 
hard to l)e obliii'ed- to sav that no record can l»e Liixcn of the 
familv name of his wife, the nlate of their marriaLi'c. <>r the 
l)irths of their children. We only know that she l)ore the 
excellent name of Mary, which has hecn so creditalil\' jier- 
petuated in the families of her descendants. It is sad to real- 
ize that so much of our knowleilg'e of the family is dependent 
upon tradition which is often unreliahle. 

Thev were undouhtedlv married hefore l(i4(> and had a laru'e 
familv of children, most of them prohahly horn in Duxhury 
and several dyinu' while youn_u\ As they had aideil in tlie 
subduing and settlement of the. two towns, their li\-es nnist 
have been tilled with almost ceaseless care and laboi-. with few 
conveniences and no supertlnities. Their dwelliuL;' house, like 
otliers of that periotl, was probably made from hewn logs. 
with the spaces filled with clay: the chimney, of sticks or 
stones ami jdastered outside and in with clay, was built against 
one end on the outside of the house. Idieii' clothing was of 
homespun W(.)olen, flax, or hem}», supplemented perhaps, with 
leather made from the skins of deer. Their food consisted of 
various prepxarations of Indian corn, beans, rye or wheat bread, 
a few vegetables, tish, clams, lobsters, wild game, and in thcii' 
season, the Ijerries and wild fruit that were common in Xcw 
Ensfland ; beef and mutton were luxuries seldom induliii^d in. 
and neither potatoes, tea, nor cotfee had been heard of. TIkui- 
dishes, douljtless, were few and mainly of wood, with pcihaps 
a |)late or two of [tewtei".'" 

* A very vivid impression of the lives of the early emigrrants to New England 
may be gained from the accurate and intensely interesting book from the press 
of Ticknor ct Co., "The Pilgrim Republic," written by the late ;Mr. .lolni A. (iood- 
win, and also from the stories by Mrs. .Jane (Goodwin) Austen.

A church was formed in Duxhury as early as l(v)2 : and 
Kev. Ralph Partridge, '"a man of pious and Ijlameless life. 
gentleness of spirit, and meekness of heart," was the minister 
from 1(337 to his deatli in llioS. AVhether they were mend_)ers 
it is im})ossil)le to state, as the records (_^f the church were 
Ijurned with tliose of the town. Xor can we tell if they were 
members of the church in Bridgewater, which was organized 
on its first settlement. Kev. James Keith was theii' first settled 
minister, ordained in l(i(54. and C()ntinued until his death in 
1719. He was from Scotland, educated at the University of 
Aberdeen, "a worthy man, faithful sliepherd. and al)le divine." 
on intimate terms with Increase Mather, Judge Sewell, and the 
leading men of that d.ay. He was a fine })enman and wi'ote 
many of tlie deeds, wills, etc., of his parishioners, and. without 
doubt, kept a careful chiircli record, but it cannot be found. If 
accessible to the historian of that period, what aid it would give ! 

At the Second Centennial Annivei'sarv of the Incorporation 
of Bridgewater, June 3, 1856, Hon. Emory Washburn,'^ in an

Bnt. though entering late into the liekl, we are warranted, from 
its whole historv. in believing that few towns liaxe heen more 
uniform or consistent in sn])|>lying to the young the means of 
education. Though there were among the early settlers, few 
who laid claim to much scliolarslii]i. there were none who 
wanted that general intelligence and |iractical good sense so 
much more useful to men in tlieir coiiditi(.)n. 'i'here was in 
this respect a remarkal»le uniformity among them, and scared \" 
if any. less remarkal)le identity in their religious faith and 
ohsei'vance of their iiKjral duties. ^\nd, as an evidence (jf this 
it is Ixdieved by those who have mad.e it a subject of investi- 
gation, that drunkenness and its kindred vices were unknown 
among them: and not a single conviction of an inhabitant of 
the town, for any crime involving moral turpitude, was had 
while Plymouth existed as a cohjuy I 

" When a better system of religion or of practical hiith than 
this can be discovered, the world may begin to dispense with 
the old-fashioned notions of Robinson and Brewster. And yet 
it was not because the men of that day were wanting in sjiirit 
or energv or enterprise.

" But history does not tell of a mother's eouni,ue that (juailed,, 
or a woman's iV^rtitude that shrunk, amidst tliese dangers." 

Hon. Lemuel Shaw,* Chief Justice of Massachusetts, said: 
"In the first place the founders were actiiated and governed, in 
all their thoughts and in all their movements, hy high relig- 
i()us and moral })rinri]tlc. They A\ere not adventurers who ha<l 
left their country for a time to mend their fortunes and then 
return : they came to seek a permanent al tiding place, to estaV)- 
lish a home for themselves and their descendants, which should 
satisfv their cherished ideas of a }iure, religions connuon- 
wealth. Thev came with little })ro}ierty : hut the means on 
which they relied, — and on which, as tlie e\'ent pro\'ed, they 
migiit rely with success, — next to an und(_)ul)ting faith in the 
pro\"idence of God, were earnest minds and willing hands. 

"But it is not on their religious character, however, that I 
would dwell : hut I (h) wish to ask yijur attention to their high 
m<jral })rinciples. In my judgment they were truly and con- 
scientiouslv governed l>y a princi})le of strict integrity, a pure 
sense of exact justice, of strict c<(uality of rights in the dis- 
trihation and enjovment of all civil and s<)cial Ijcncfits and

strong sense of moralitv, of jnsticc and integrity, or pcrfci-t

consider that the remarkahle growth in ad\-ancing from povci'ty 
to competencv, t*^ wealth, and to all the I'chncmcnts of an 
advanced civilization, are mairdy atti'ihntaMe to two (pialities, — 
industry and frugalitv. Lahor, honest lahor, c\'en hai'<l and

that aft(n-wards hecaine so common, Solomon Leonard and his

■' E. W. Lincoln, Esq.. 

Jly Dear Sir :— I am quite sure that within tlie hounds of the new Park, at the Lake, 
once stood the house of Samuel Ijeonard of Bridfrewater. And it was from that house 
that his son Samuel was stolen by the Indians in the year 1696. Investigations thus far 
point to the spot on the hill, where the old cellar-hole is found, as being the site, or near 
the site, where the old log-house of Samuel Leonard stood. It would seem the best 
natural location for his house on that beautiful rise of ground. About one year after 
the capture of Samu^-l Leonard, or Leouarrlson. liis master took part in the descent on 
the town of Haverhill. Mass.. and succeeded in capturing Mrs. Dustin and Mis. Neff. 
The story of their capture and escape, by kilJint; the Indian.s, will be found on page is.'i 
of BarTjer's Historical Collections of Massachusetts, and forms an interestinjr item to 
the history of Worcester and her new park : for I am quite sure that it was fi-om that 
territorj- that the Leonard boy was taken. * * * * I shall have to 

go to Boston now before I cati connect all tlie titles to the land from Leonard down to 
present owners, which I hope to do. 

* * * * Yours, with great respect. E. B. Crane."

li\ed there a ])art of that jieriod. He owned land also in AVor-

that when he deeded his homesti'ad in I^ridgewater, April 17,

by his associates in captivity. Mr.s. llainiah Duston and Mrs. 
^lary Xeff of Haverhill, in slaughtering their merciless cajttors 
and their almost miraculons restoration to intensely anxious 
relatives and friend.^. In this connection the nanu' of this 
modest youth, written Samuel l^eonardson in the annals, has 
become immortalized, while his personal identity has been in 
obscurity for nearly two centuries. 

March 15, 1697. the Indians attacked the town of liaNcrhill. 
Mass., and after murdering twenty-seven of the inhabitants and 
burning nine dwellings, carried away thirteen ca] iti ves. Am< mg 
the latter were the two women before named, Hannah Duston 
and ^rarv X^etf. 


A liistorv i>f tins foniv 1)V the Indians, witli tlic cxjicricncc 
of these two ciqitix'es, the (hirin^u' and intrepid niamiei' of their 
esca|)e, ete., was published soon after it occurred by C()tton 
Mather in his Mcvjnalia, print(Ml in London, and has been 
repeated in other publications nian\' times since. 

Epitomize<l. it is as follows: Mi's. ])iistoii was in bed, 
havino- been conlined onlv a week befoi'e, witli iier ele\'enth 
cliild. Idie inhuman sa^■al;■es compelled her to rise instantly 
and di'css herself, which was done so huri'idl\" that she had on 
l:)Ut one shoe when driven fi'om the house whi<di they set on 
fire. The infant in the arms of Mary Xelf was seized and 
killed. 'IMie Indians, with all their capti\-es. stai'ted in .iii'eat 
haste for the wilderness at the north, traveling twelve miles 
that day. The weather w^as exceedingly cold, the snow not all 
disa})]»eared. the mud dee]), but they puslie(l on ilay after (hvy 
iiiitil the\' reached the vicinity of the C'ontoocook river where 
it enters tlie Merrimac in New Hampshire. Here the cajitives 
were separated, Mrs. Duston and Mrs. Netf W(U-e tak'cn by the 
Indian who claimed thc^m as his pi'ojierty to his home on the 
island long kuiown as (Jontoocook', but now l)iiston"s Island. 
Ileiv thev found the bo\- Samuel, who had been taken captive 
as before stated. <-H' the Indians there were two men, three 
women and se\"en chihb'cn. 

The sufferings of the capti\'e women may be imagiut'il but 
n(^t desci'ibed Aftei' a time they wei'e infoi'med that thev 
W()ul<l soon be tai<en to an Indian settlement in, oi- towards 
Canada, and on their entrance to the village woid<l be re(pnre(l 
to " run the gauntlet." 'hhey inniie(liately decided thai thev 
would rather suffer death than siu-li indignity and at once 
de\'ised a, plan of escajie from theii' sa\"age con(]uei"ors. 

The Hrst step in their programme was the f)old audi desper- 
ate one of kiUing the whole family of Indians, and it was 
(fecided to attemjit it ou the night of ;\Iarcii ;j(». ICli;. It has 
been stated that the plan originated with Mrs. iMistoii ;ind that 
"she ])ersuad('d the nurse and boy to join her." However 
that ma\' lia\'e been, it is \'ei'y plain that it rcopiircd the com- 
bined \alor ;ind coui-age of the three, and \'oung Samuel seems 
to have had '^pute as much to do in the accompbsliment of the 
l)rave and daring act as eitliei'. He had been so long with the 
Indians that tlie\- considere(| him as one i>f their children, had 
no fear of his attempting to esca])(.', and could not belie\e 
these frail women would think' of such an undertaking when 
success ;it best appeai'cil so desjiei-ate. It wasneedfnl that tlie\- 
should leai'u how to wield snccessi'Mlly the weapons of the sa\'-

about 24,000 acres held by them in common. The first division was of .50 acres to each 
of the 63 shares. In that division Solomon Leonard toDk lot No. 26 ; which is in N. E. 
part of the town of Ashfield and is fl892) occupied and owned as a farm by H. Z. Smith, 
who is a descendant m the 4tli generation from the first Chileab Smith who came here 
• the third settler in Huntstown). The second division of lands was made in 1762— in 100 
acre lots— and the same share drew lot Xo. 2 in the second division ; which lot is in the 
north central part of the town, one mile from the village, and owned formerly by Seth 
Hall for a farm and now by his son A. G. Hall. I have no record which shows to whom 
Solomon Leonard conveyed his lands and rights here. I presume he never came here 
to reside. ■■ 

■' The county deeds were very few of them recorded in the early days and there is no

Ki'oiii. Hon. Koswell Boltuin's History of Urwell we take 
the h)ll(>winii': "Mr. Davdd Leonard eanie into tlie town in 
the veai' 17^-1. He was an enterprising and energetic man, 
and imniediatelv set aliont erecting a grist and saw mill. 
These were the tirst mills erected in town, and weiv of great 
benelit to the early settlers. In tlie month of March, 17iS9, 
the grist mill of ^Ir. Leonard was l)nrned with 200 Inishels of 
wheat de})osited therein, which circumstance tended greatly to 
enliance the scarcity of that year. This quantity of wheat, 
could it have been preserved and distributed among the suffer- 
ing inhabitants, would liave been a great alle^'iation to tlieir 
distress. Mr. Leonard lost no time in rebuilding his mill, and 
the people, having an intei'est in its construction, did much to 
aid him in accom|)lisliing the work, so that earlv in the season 
of the same year the mill was again in operation."" AVlien the 
town was organized in 1787 lie was a])pointed Town Clerk, 
which ofhce he filled several years. The records show numer- 
ous transfers of real estate t<:) or bv him.

The following a|)[>reciative sketcli of his wife. wh(»d. Dec. 4, 
1839, has been ])repared bv a granddaughter, Mrs. C L. Ward : 

''Mary Hall was born Aug. 21, 1750, in the town (now citv) 
of Taunton, Bristol Co., Mass. She was a woman of strongly 
marked character, and with a rai'e physical constitution, of 
great energv of ])urpose and decision of will, her 'strong mind 
in a strong body" enal)led her to aeconiplish an unusual 
amount of labor, and to hll uj) her long and active life with 
usefulness. Born in the eountrv. with the meagre advantages 
for education and eulture which that age afforded to the 
s])arselv settled population, without wealth, her early privileges 
most have l:)een few. Married (to David Leonard, May 24, 
177<>), before she was twentv years of age, she assumed the 
cares of a farmei'"s wife, which at that time involved the spin- 
riioq and wearinri the dotli, as well as making the gai'ments foi" 
her household, and the making of butter and eheese with her 
own han<l. 1)V her great indnstiy, good jmlgment, and ceon- 
o'n\', theii' home was prospered, and she reared thirteen chil- 
dren, all but one of whom li\'ed to adult age: eleven of them 
had families of tlieir (jwn. two of them were ministers of the 
gosjiel (Bev. DaA'id A. Leonartl and Rev. Zenas L. Leonard), 
and ;dl of them hlled stations of intluenee and trnst. She was 
a woman of strong I'eligious eonxdctions. devont. who knew 
\\'hei'eof she belie\'e<l, and of nnswer\dng adherence to what 
she felt to l)e ' duty." .Vs an illustration of her conscientious- 

*llr. Philip H. Smith of Pawlia?, N. Y., says of this expedition : — " May 20, 1755, two 
liattalionsof troops sailed from this port of Boston under immediate command of 
Lieutenant Colonel .John Winslow. The soldiers were drawn froiu this colony and 
when they enlisted were told, without understanding- very definitely what it meant, 
that they were to be used to drive the French from their encroachments in Nova Scotia. 
While in Nova Scotia the New England soldiers were badly treated by the regular 
British troops and Winslow himself suffered indignities from the British officers. He 
said of the part he played in the deportation that it was ' very disagreeable business.' ''

forming the inoruinu' lalxjvs for her large family. \v;dk four 
miles to ('Imi'idi. (the nearest of an evangelical order), and aftei* 
morning and afternoon service walk back and resume the cares 
of her household. She \vas never ashamed to sjieak of hei- 
Saviour, or to administer rebuke or a word of i-eprotjf if she felt 
the cause of truth demanded it. She was a woman of praver 
and lived a life of faith from day to da\', and herhaliitual walk 
and conversation was such as to show to the world the power 
of a life 'hid with Christ in (iod." She had much of the Puri- 
tan spirit and hal)it of mind, and I am sui'e, had her lot l)een 
cast among them, would have been of those who left all for 
c-onscience sake and fled to found a free church in a free land. 
ller stern sense of duty constrained her actions in all the A'aried 
relations of life. 

" She was as strong in her friendships as in her religitms con- 
victions, and in the evening of life, wdien her active labors 
were over, slie and two of her near neighljors, widows of nearly 
the same age and always ardent friends, were in the halnt of 
exchanging weekly visits at each other's houses; starting soon 
after dinner with their k-nittinu', that thev mio-ht eniov a lono- 
afternoon before the five o clock tea. and returning home 
before sundown. I remember the weekly visits of these aged 
Christians as one of tlie sweetest and most lovely examples of 
true and devoted friendshi]) I have ever known, lasting until 
one after another passed away. In the later years of her life 
her home was the resort of nianv ministers of the denomina- 
tion to which she gave her adherence, and she was ever readv 
to help to the extent of her abilitv the cause of Christ bv her 
means and by her prayers. Tliose wlio were associated with 
her in daily life were always impressed by her spirituality 
and her abiding sense of the realitv of unseen things, tlie 
shortness of life, and the nearness of etei'nity. 

"My recollections of lier are only those of childhood and 
youth, as she had nearly reached her three-score and toi \'ears 
when I first rememVjcr her. but from that time till her death 
my im])ressions of my revered grandmother are of a most eai'-

for thec()ming of the Master, retaining her hiculties unclouded

summons came siKldenh/. and she had oidv to pass from the

Seott (:»f Luzerne Countv. Pennsylvania. 

In early life he followed the sea and was for se\-en years 
engaged in wdiale lisheries. Al.out 177'.'. his uncle Da\id 
Leonard gave him some lands in Penns\d\-ania. upon condition 
that he woidd remove there and ovei'sei.' oihei- lands helonging 
to the donor. He aeeepted the gift and locate(l in the town of 
Pittstown, Luzerne Counlv. 

At this]ierioil the Indians of this localiU' wer<' \"er\" Ik. stile 
to tlie wdiite settlers who were ol.liged to take refuge in hlock 
houses from wdiieh they dare not \enture out except in siUli- 
cient numbers to o\-erp(.\\cr the sa\ages. At onetime, how- 
ever, Capt. Joseph went alone and unj.rotecteil f(.r a jilix'sician 
for his siek wife: the Indians aftci'wards told him the\- saw 
him hut would not nioh/st him foi' fear (.f L;i\"iiiL;' an alai'iu. A 


few (Ii\vs after tliis the settlers received warning of an ex- 
pected attack from the In<lians and retreated to Stroudsburg 
aljout sevent}^ or eighty miles distant — the sick wife of Air. 
Leonard being carried upon the back (.A a very strong man 
named Cary. Then followed the awful massacre of AV^^oming. 

After remaining away about tw<_) years the settlers returned 
to see what had l)ecome of their possessions. Their lands 
were held unikM' what was railed the Connecticnt (daim. which 
was afterward (bsputed by those holding claims under the 
Pemisvlvania title : the matter in (bs]))ite Ijcing linallv sul)- 
mitted to the Su])rcme Coui't of Pennsylvania, the Connecticut 
claim was pri.inounccd iu\'alid and those holding title under it 
were compelled to re-purchase their lands of tlie Pennsylvania 
C<_)mpany and to subscribe to an oath of allegiance and fidelity. 
Joscpli Leonard took this oath as is shown by the following 
copy of a certificate wnw in ])(;)ssessi(.>n of Ins descendants: 

"I do certify that Joscpli Leonard, hnsbandman of the 
Townsliip of l'*ittstown, in the C^»unty of Luzerne, hath volun-

^Vbuut a yeai' aftei' this the country was iinindatcd with a 
terrible freshet, known at the time as the " l)ig ice freshet," 
which literally swc])t off all the remaining })roperty of Capt. 
Joscjdi. including e\'cn his house. His hopes and prospects

to travel in Lidian canoes. This was in the early pai1 of sum-

He was one of the Hi'st white settk'i's in this ix'gion. and. 
with anothei' man, took" a k'ase of the Indians foi' one mik' 
S(|Mare of land near what is now thecit\- of Ibnghamton, the

Soon after came Colonel AVilliam Kose from Coimeetieut, and 
then Whitiieys from Columbia County. At the time of their 
settlement (17^7) their nearest white nei,u'lil)ors were at Tioja'a,

"Dr. Recompense Leonard was a man of marl<cd chai'actcr. 
Wliilst others seemingly delighted to tell him their secrets he 
invarial)lv kept his own. It is relate(l of him that upon one 
occasion he was forced int(.> a lawsuit by a j>crson noted h^r 
l)eing much in lawsuits, who had employed (pnte a nund)ei' of 
lawyers on his side: all were on the y/// vice to know wdio tlie 
doctor had. l>ut. wdien the hour set for the trial had arrived, he 
a]i|.")eared and. |»leading liis own case, won it, nincli tc) the cha- 
grin of his oj)|)oncnt. In his |)rofession he was a man mnch 
ahead of the times in which he li\'ed. He came to the con- 
clusion that a great im])iT)vement could l»e madt' on the old 
routine of bleeding, calomel and opinm, and did a gond deal 
of hand-rubbing, discarding manv of the poisonous diaigs in 
use. He was much called upon in hard cases — his patients so 
uniformly got Ijcttei'and reco\"ered. that ucigldioring phvsiciaiis 
declared there was never auA'thing tlie mattci" witli thi'm. The 
leather coat he wore, made to liis order, atti'acteil much atten- 
tion, (rubber garments were then unknown.) He had medi- 
cines of his own com])ounding which became much celebrate(l 
and in high repute — one was called tlie Peruvian Dro}»s — the 
receipt for making of wdnch was lost at the time of liis death. 

■'He was a man of ipiiidv wit: seMoni indeed (lid an associate

From a sketch of his life l)y his grandson. Col. John Hay, 
v\'e take the following : — '• He was a l)oy of relined and studi(.)us 
di.-|)osition, much gi\-en to books from his earliest days. Fie 
was pre})ai'ed for c<.)llegc by a famous instructor, Abner Alden, 
and was graduated from Brown l'ni\'ersity in 1792; he deli\'- 
ei'ed the class poem, a function which was rejieated l)y one of 
his grandsons sixtv-sh\ vears later. He had embraced the 
Baptist faith while a student, and had been bai)tized. according 
to tlie rigorous fashion of those days, by immersion in the 
Scekouk" ri\('r, a hole haxdng been cut in the ice h>r that pur- 
pose. ^\fter leaving college he taught school for a while, at 
the same time }>ursuing his theological studies, and was 
ordained as a mirhster on the 17tli of I)cccmb(_'r, 1794. at 
Ib'idgcwater, ^[assacliusetts : the sermon on the occasion was 
l)reached by the Ivcvcrend l»r. Thomas l>aldwin. In 179l)-7 
he ])reaehed on the Island of Nantucket. 

"()ntlie 9th of Fcbruarv, 1797, he was marricil to Miss

rison County, he concluded to go no further. He bought a 
considerable estate in Land, Init was unable to continue the 
active lial)it of life to whicli lie was accustomed. He died on 
the 22(1 of July, 1^11'. After his death his widow had occa-

character. She was forty-two years of age, with eleven chil- 
(b'en ; se})arated fi'om home and friends l)y a distance hai'dly 
conceivable in these days of railroads and telegraph, with a 
pro})ertv consisting almost entirclv of un])i'oductive land. It 
was not oidv without dismay oi' re])ining, but probably with 
no idea that her conduct was es})ecially meritorious, that she 
betook herself t(_) the care of her lai'ge family and the manage- 
ment of her affairs. She had the success Avhich was due to 
her merit. 'Idie matron of the Proverl)s w^as not better s})oken

*' An illustration of the church on Fiske Hill, Sturbridse, Mas.s., is given wiiii a jilan 
of the pews as remembered by Mr. Manning Leonard. The building was raised June 3. 
1784: Hon George Davis in his '• Historical Sketch of Sturbridge" says: "On the 
southern declivitj- of this elevation was situated the neat and comfortable Bapti-st Church. 
Here those families [the Fiskes] with others of that denomination, in various parts of 
the town, worshiped more than half a century. The Rev. Zenas L. Leonard was the 
watchman on this watchtower. Mr. Leonard ' was in season and out of season ' in his 


failiii,!!' liealtli obliu'eil liini to request a dismission. In addi- 
tion to liis })ast(iral duties lie was for many years engaged in 
instrneting the 3'outli of the nelghVjorliood, having students in 
his family who were fitted for eollege and tlie prominent 
positions of business life. He also owned and cultivated a 
farm, u})on which he was in tlie liabit of performing regular 
labor. lie was elected by tlie citizens of the town to repre- 
sent them in the councils (.)f the state for six terms. 

AVhile in tlie midst (_)f a vigorous manhood he was visited 
witli a maladv (softening of tlie bi'ain), wliicli brottght a cloud 
over his intellect. He d. in Sturl3ridge June 2-i, 1841. His 
wife "was a granddaitgliter of the tirst two settlers of Stur 
bridge — Lieut. Henry Fiske and his lu'ofher. Dea. Daniel 
Fiske, wh(_) pitched their tent in 1781 on what has been known 
ever since as • Fiske Hill.' Her father was Dea. Henry 
Kisk'C, son of the tirst named, and her mother, Sarah, dan. of 
the last named. Although she was very young when she 
assumed the responsilde duties of a minister's wife, yet she 
develo|:>ed at once a remarkable capacity for lu'r position.

He was a '" iiii^Lihty hvinter." From an obituary notiee in tlie 
Potsdam Courier Freeu.aii of Se|)t. 11*. 1^88 we take tlie follow- 
ing : — "He was Ixirn in Canton, but Hved most of his life on 
the farm wliere he died, in Pierrepont. Prom the a^u'e of 2U 
to 75 it is estimated that he killed 1.5(M) deer, 300 wolves, -15 
panthei's. more than lt)0 bears besides many foxes. (_)tter and 
other fnrd:)earin_i; animals. He had a passion foi- the Adiron- 
dacks and \'isited them several times during the year, and pur- 
sued liis favorite oceupation until the infirmities of old age 
wai'ued him to desist. Pie on several occasions encountered 
1)ears and panthers at the imminent risk of his life, Init his 
courage and agility never deserted him and he alwavs came 
off victorious. ■"•" * '" He lived a life of stei'ling honestv, 
trusted in (lod and didgcnxl to Ins fellow men." 

We also make extracts from an article published several 
years before his death: — ''Moses Leonard, more familiarlv 
callcil Pnrle Mose or Great Huntci'. was boi-n in Canton in 
1805, l)ci]ig the third cliild born in that town. "' * ^ His 
childhood was spent in liel])ing to clear u]) the forest, and 
attending sucdischools as tlie condition of tlie wilderness would 
]K'riiiit; l)ut wlien quite young he de\'eloped a talent for hunt- 
ing and trap])ing. About the year 182(» his father moved to 
Pieri'epoiit, tlie ])resent residence of Uncle AP:>se, and since 
th'ii his time has been sj)ent niostlv in the South Wo(h1s, and 
no d(_)ul)t he has been one of the most successful hunters who 
ex'cr entered these woods, sh(~)\ving a wonderful sagacity for 
hndiug game : he could det 'ct the presence of wolves \)\ signs 
that no other hunter would notice. * * "" In deer hunt- 
ing he was \-erv successful, killing in one season a hundred, 
nianv of them l)eing killed on the run. ^ ^' ^''' \X one 
time he found a den of black Ix'ars an<l crejit in upon his hands' 
and knees and in the darkness killcil four bv shooting at their 
glistening eyes, and then hc^ went in and drew them out. * ^' 
"" Manv of the voung he ca[itureil alive and it was not uncom- 
mon to see a ])et at his residence. ■"'" •■■ '" He says he has 
k'illeil fortv-four ]:)antliers, killing li\'e in one day : some of 
tlieni measured ten feet in length. < )n one occasion lie caught 
a lai'ge panther which drew the ti'ap and clog to a jirecipice and 
it was iieeessai'v to go down to get him; so Piicle ^[ose tied

In liis earlv nianliood he tan;a-ht sdiool in his natix'e town ; 
in the year is2'.», acctunpanied by his cousin Jonathan Blalce, 
he went to Ilbnois and located near Lowell, LaSalle Co., where 
he carried on farming quite extensively for twenty years. In 
184'.:', lie removed to G-alesl)urg in order to give liis children 
better educational advantages: he bought, a small farm near 
town on which he resided for several years. 

He was an earnest Christian and an active mcml:)er of the 
Presbyterian church of wliich he was made a deacon. In 
1856 he was emploved by the American Bible Society and 
was engaged for two or three years in Bible work', canvassing 
Knox and adjoining counties: and suljsequently was chosen 
City Missionary of Galesburg, in which work he spent the 
remaining vears of his life. iVs a sample of his faithful devo- 
tion to this work, we quote the following from his memoranda 
of one year's labor, tliat of 1860: "Visited 1('(>7 families: 
personal con\-ersation with 953 persons: prayed with 412 him- 
ilies : made 376 visits to the sick ; attended 150 prayer meet- 
ings: also 44 funerals." His reports for several years were 
similar to this. Li all his life lie was striving to do some kind 
deed or speak a word that might \\-a\c a good influence on 
those with whom he was l)rought in contact. Feeling the 
need of a mission S. S., in 1S58 he called a meeting in the 
passenger de]»ot of the C. B. ifc Q. li. li, and oi-ganized a 
scliool which he conducted for some time in the depot and

of these and always ke^it himself well inh)rmed of the ] ii-o,i!ress 
of events without partaking- of the amlhtions of tlu' u'reat woi'ld 
of which he saw so little. Being the youngest ()f the himily 
and his services not being of urgent necessity at home, he was 
apprenticed to a shoemaker and aeipiiivil ipnte a reputation 
for the excellence of his work in that business. He did not 
follow liis trade continuously. l)Ul was at one time iderk in a 
o-eneral store and again emjiloyiMl in some capacity by the 


lla)ii})(l('n MaiinfactrLriiig Company. With the exce})ti()n of 
several vears spent in Walliugford, Yt., and Ogdenshurgli, 
N. Y., he was a resident of his native town. His life was |)rin- 
cijiallv sj»ent as tluit of the New England farmer of the l)etter 
class, possessing his home and worlcing on year by year,, eon- 
tent with doing well the task of each day. 

"Ilewas a good conversationalist, well ird'ormed n])on enr- 
rent e\'ents, correct in his haljits. generous to a fault, and a 
favorite among his friends. At one time he was interestetl in 
the milittirv and hcM a lientcnant's corrnnission. He took an 
active interest in j)olitics and was an ai'deiit anti-slavery Whig. 
In liis later vears he often rt'called the time when he found a 
fngiti\-c slave in his l)arn wdioni he jiromptly transferred to his 
house and. after a i^eriod of rest, assisted by substantial aid on 
his wav to Canada. Yery cai'efnlly was the secret kept, for 
the time, w^ell knowing the penaltv foi' liarl)oring a fuy-itive 

•• His l)usiness ex]ierienee and familiarity with legal forms 
was such that he was frequently called upon for services 
which sti'ictlv belonged to the legal profession, and his opin- 
ion w^as genci'ally accepted without question. He had strict 
views of morality and intense hatred of inconsistency and 
ci'ooked dealing. He retained his hiculties until past the age 
of eightv, wdien he received a sti'okc of paralvsis, from which 
he d. No\". 2<), I'SBl. His widow to whom he largelv owed his
